Hotel at a Glance: KeyLime Cove Waterpark Resort

You can’t miss KeyLime Cove as you drive up I-94 in northeast Illinois. Water slides in a rainbow of colors protrude from the massive hotel complex, twisting and turning before leading back inside. The slides, harbingers of fun to come, are just small pieces of an indoor water park replete with two 500-foot water slides, a wave pool, and an interactive aquatic playground for kids.

  • Where you’ll stay: a deluxe guest room with free WiFi and a fridge
  • Air temperature in the water park: 84 degrees all year long
  • Go cashless: Upon check-in, you’ll receive a high-tech wristband that functions as a room key, water-park ticket, and credit card.
  • Beyond the water: The resort houses numerous shops, an arcade, and spas for both adults and kids.
  • Dining options: Six onsite eateries include the tropically themed Crazy Toucan and an old-fashioned soda fountain.
  • Driving time from Chicago: 1 hour

Gurnee, Illinois: Theme Park and Shopping near Chicago’s North Shore

Located about halfway between Chicago and Milwaukee, Gurnee is virtually synonymous with Six Flags Great America, a high-octane theme park. Typically open from May until Halloween, Six Flags features The Dark Knight coaster, an adrenalized tour of Gotham City, and Raging Bull, a hypertwister coaster reaching speeds up to 73 miles per hour. In the summer, cool down on water-park attractions such as the five-story Dive Bomber slide. For a break from the park, head to Gurnee Mills, one of the state’s largest malls.

Gurnee lies just west of Chicago’s North Shore, a group of affluent suburbs along Lake Michigan. There are several sites to explore in these nearby cities. The picturesque town of Evanston, home to Northwestern University, was named one of the “Coolest Suburbs Worth a Visit” by Travel + Leisure. And in Glencoe you’ll find more than 9,000 types of plants at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
